    mersaydees's Note:

    Based on a recipe from the April 2004 issue of Saveur magazine, featuring an article on Madhur Jaffrey’s cookbook, Indian Passages. The intro to the recipe in the magazine says, “In testing this Sri Lankan recipe from author Jaffrey’s book, we found that the cooking time for the carrots may vary according to the variety and freshness of the vegetables.”

      LOVE THIS!! I quartered baby carrots lengthwise. Yes, I really took the time. I used 3 small shallots which, in the end looked like more than 5TB but oh well. I didn't have fresh curry leaves BUT I do have ground curry leaves, yes indeedy. I used abouuuuuut 2 tsp but would use less next time. I used the entire can on coconut milk & it just covered the carrots & made a fab sauce. Kids LOVED this!! Made for whatever part of ZWT8 we're in now. :)
